continuing Parakeet Auklet

Between 11:45 and 12:15 today I watched the Parakeet Auklet floating a bit to the west of Hermit Rock, apparently one of its favorite locations.  It was present when I first arrived, I watched it and explained to a number of passers-by that I was not looking at whales, and even showed the Auklet to a few.  Too bad I had to head home to the heat of Central contra Costa County; it was fun to see this bird and try to tell the questioners that this bird should really be in Alaska.
